My kids were happy campers
my 7 year old's tongue got stuck to the inside of our "freezer" cups.
yes, you read correctly - her tongue got stuck to the inside of the cup, which is metal. It's like a mini ice cream maker...you put cold liquid in them and they have a plastic piece that you turn and turn to make a "slushy" type drink. I thought the cups were really neat. Never, not once, did it occur to me that one of my children's tongues would get stuck to the inside of it.
Oh, how I wish I had a picture of that. But
I couldn't stop laughing long enough to get the camera my child was crying, and her tongue was stuck (I can't get the Christmas movie scene out of my head, when the kid's tongue gets stuck to the flagpole). Anyway, I'm trying not to laugh and putting warm water on her tongue, which releases. But.....I'm thinking to myself......why does stupid sh*t like this always happen? Is it just me? Anyway, learn from my mistakes people. Teach your children not to stick their tongues on cold metal objects (which I thought we had covered at some point in the past...did she not watch the above mentioned movie?). I know, it's MY fault for giving her the stupid cup in the first place. But......hahahaha, OMG...it still makes me laugh. Poor kid. I won't tell you how she also fell into the bathtub yesterday....ok, I probably will...
